one option would be to setup leased addresses for the internet users on a
dhcp server, this would be machine based as opposed to a/c based. Then you
could configure squid to deny accessto all but this group
acl deny all
acl allow internet_group
I seem to remember reading something on the squid mailing list about setting
up password authentication. The archives are on the site.

Subject: [ILUG] Proxy Servers @ Irlgov
Would anyone know where I could get some documentation
on which Proxy is best.
I am currently working with some Government sites and
in the process of reccomending a stable proxy server
as a new standard.
They are currently usin M$ proxy server and it's
causing major hassles in terms of performance +
various NT issues.
I would like to recommend Squid on Linux but need to
know first, how easy it will be integrating NT user
Groups/Accounts on Linux for authentication.
The sites currently have an Internet users group who
are allowed access the proxy server. I would like to
take theese users/groups accross with some kewl
utility and do away with NT authentication.
If I set squid to allow access to particular
users/groups how exactly do I authenticate,
Do I supply a username + password in my browser window
when attempting to establish an Internet connection.
Or can I do it like NT does, If a user is part of a
group that the proxy allows access, no further
authenticationis required. ??
Any help what-so-ever is appreciated.
I would also appreciate if anyone could tell me where
to get some documentation on how cool squid is versus
M$ proxy. The It people here will not take my word for
it, the want facts on paper.
PS: I feel it is a good way to get Linux moving in
Ireland if theese guys go for it.
